The Kiwis are fleeing

This shows the annual net departures of NZ citizens. In the year to June 2014 it was 12,224 and then it reduced over the next three years to 2,915 – only losing 55 Kiwis a week. It doubled during 2018 and 2019, but still relatively low. During the Covid-19 pandemic Kiwis returned home, of course.

But look at what is happening now. Almost 35,000 Kiwis have left in the last 12 months. That’s 670 a week.
